Since it's major disaster on April 15, 1912, RMS Titanic and its tragic story drew much attention all over the world. This major nautical disaster that occurred in the North Atlantic overturned the luxurious fate of British elites and the humble lives of the lower classes, and killed approximately 1,500 passengers.
We were not really sure whether real love stories occurred there (like what the 1997 film portrayed), but based on some resources, the 882 ft. x 92.5 steamship is house to a rich culture, social constructs and the likes. Back in that time, economic status was emphasized--or more of a big deal, and since elites and proletariats co-exist with different backgrounds, their opportunities are distinct. Sadly, since then, those third-class citizens were only provided with limited opportunities. With regards to this issue, there were documents found to prove this position, one of which is on their dining menus. For example, first-class passengers have more diverse and more nutritious list of food that could be eaten, while lower classes can only consume less.
To make things clearer, here's how differences on meals were set depending on the passenger's the social class, only from the most tragic ship Titanic.
According to some literatures, first class passengers include politicians, businessmen, athletes, military personnel, and others from the top elite circles. Truly enough, the 'first class' cluster they've established during the early 1900s is still 'operating'.
Have you noticed those high-grade appetizers and dishes? And oh, that Buffet line-up is superb! I wonder how much would it cost for the obese British elites who wanted to try each dish.
Equating the professions of those in the class from what we have today, these people are the educators, clergymen, tourists, and the likes. Financially, a second-class ticket from the United Kingdom to the United States would cost them $1800 at present.
Menu looks like what quality ferries offer for passengers on the tourist class, or for above economy classes (which I'm not really sure to be exact).
Breakfast line up is not that bad for those who maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Sources claimed that those included in the third class were immigrants from places around the world, ethnic groups, and those who are travelling alone.
